Paul Zerdin and his dysfunctional puppet family are back by popular demand. As well as starring everyone’s favourites Sam, Albert and Baby, there’ll be his new bodyguard, an urban fox, some hilarious audience participation – and a talking ice cream! All using a mixture of master puppeteering, state of the art animatronic wizardry and a unique blend of edgy comedy.
It’s a quirk of British theatre that a man can get a standing ovation for spending the best part of 75 minutes on a stage talking to himself. It goes without saying that Paul’s skills are top notch – there’s not a hint of movement from his lips and he has a strong command of a range of different voices. But it’s his control of the puppets and sense of timing that brings his characters to life!
Paul made his TV debut in 1996 as the first outright winner of LWT’s The Big Big Talent Show, hosted by Jonathan Ross. Since then he has appeared on countless TV shows including Comedy Central’s The World Stands Up, ITV1’s Comedy Rocks with Jason Manford, Tonight at The London Palladium, The Princes Trust Gala and has made three appearances at The Royal Variety Performance. His auditions for America’s Got Talent have racked up millions of views on YouTube and Paul also appeared on Britain’s Got Talent: The Champions in 2019.
